Akhilesh and Mamata have often supported each other. When he was chief minister of UP, Akhilesh and Mamata Banerjee held a public meeting in Lucknow against demonetisation in November 2016. Akhilesh had hosted Mamata and his party had provided most of the logistics support to the rally.

Similarly, Mamata had supported Akhilesh during the family feud, on becoming the national president of the party, and recently congratulated him for the SP-BSP alliance.

Akhilesh has skipped most of the ‘opposition unity’ meetings, except the one in Karnataka during the new government’s swearing in there. He has skipped the ones organised by Chandrababu Naidu or KCR, and also the swearing-in ceremony of Kamal Nath as chief minister of Madhya Pradesh in Bhopal.
